Chocolate meringue mousse with berries

Parfait without cooking: Chocolate meringue with berries

Chocolate meringue mousse with berries: a sweet cover that you can prepare in 15 minutes, online, without cooking and getting just two bowls. The parfait is made with cream, inside with much dark chocolate and nuts and is accompanied by a cascade of berries. The recipe is not mine but the famous Nigella Lawson. She prepares it only with meringues and cream, I enriched as if it were a stracciatella Parfait, with dark chocolate, chopped walnuts and a little’ Cointreau, because I love the vibrant flavors and with many shades.

Since the semifreddo is sweet, I served with berries, pleasantly sour: strawberries, Cranberries and currants powdered sugar. Preparation is a snap, 15 minutes are more than enough real: just mix crushed meringues, chopped nuts and chocolate whipped cream. One night in the freezer and the dessert is ready. If you like berries in desserts, have a look at all my RECIPES WITH BERRY and, course my ICE CREAM RECIPES AND SEMIFREDDI, a more greedy other.

You can also enrich the chocolate meringue parfait with berries with a dark chocolate sauce, If you are truly delicious. O with bits of candied orange peel to give a wonderful scent of citrus. I've put in a mold skullcap, to get this beautiful dome shape, classic of Sicilian schiumoni. But you can use a mold for plum cake and slice the parfait ice cream as a socket. Or even use a regular cake pan, so you will get a magnificent iced cake. For a formal dinner or friends you will make a beautiful figure. No one will know you have it prepared in a flash and everyone will ask the recipe. I'm waiting on my channel YOUTUBE Video for many dessert recipes and not only step by step. Good day to all!

Hello, I follow your blog for some time and your recipes are great! This is a must try dessert but I doubt there is a…Once prepared should be placed in the refrigerator as you say or freezer? Because in the first case would be more a mousse than a Parfait! Congratulations!

Hello Monica and thank you very much! The dessert is a frozen dessert and it goes in the freezer, in the freezer, otherwise melts! And you have to garnish with fruits before serving! Let me know!

Nay Edvige, You can adjust how you want the sugar! put less because so much chocolate and meringue are already so tasty, and then the fresh fruit helps! Try it! I embrace you!

Hi Mila! See if your friends don't live too far away, Since it's still a Parfait, I'm sure it will be a huge success. To give the berries on the cake without letting them fall in transport I suggest you do a casting (room temperature) melted chocolate and lay them over, then put in the freezer. Melt during the journey! Let me know! ADA
